Faith groups notch Supreme Court win

The Supreme Court yesterday rejected a lawsuit that sought to bar religious groups from government conferences on nonprofit funding, in a ruling that conservative groups heralded as a landmark opinion that will eliminate an entire class of suits against religion in public life.
The court ruled 5-4 against the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s suit claiming that conferences run by the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives had violated the First Amendment’s ban on the establishment of religion.
The justices did not decide the merits of the case, ruling instead that the secularist group did not have standing to sue the Bush administration, since they could not demonstrate any specific injury to themselves.

  • That was the third one I was looking for. This is a good one, but I wish there would have been a discussion on the merits of the case.

    If one cannot see the inherent lack of Constitutionality in restricting groups from public funding based on their religious affiliation, then they are completely ignorant of what the terms “Freedom” and “Establishment” really mean.
